review for the western soma project began and we realized this overlapped with this the western soma plan area and the eir for central corridor would provide much further detail in the analysis and we could consider at the time we prepared this eir. what we did for western soma we considered the central corridor as it pertains to the cumulative impacts of the project and the western soma area and the projects in the area that overlaps with the western soma plan, so to the extent that we have the information available to us we analyze with the eir and approximate regard to that the western soma is adequate. the central corridor eir will look at that in much more detail than we were able to do so certainly the ah nalis will be before you in the future. >> thank you. i appreciate that and i think the rest of my comments be best taken up during the approval of the plan itself, and they have to do with the zoning and it does have to do with the historic structures and whether they have more flexible uses, but i don't believe those are environmental issues at this time. >> commissioner sugaya
portions of the western soma plan or create sunset provisions to do the opposite, or in the advanced option carve out some or all of the overlap area from the plan and zoning so those are the options that are before you. again what is in your materials is what is option number one which is just to adopt the plan and zoning and maps as proposed. i am happy to talk about those further but let me turn it back over to cory to finish up the presentation. >> okay. moving on to the next issue which is something we discussed at length last week, so we want to get into more detail today which is the issue of flexibility and land uses and historic buildings. you asked us to look on that more specifically so we wanted to provide you more information and options. the options are not xuftive. we tried to keep them manageable and open to additional ideas and discussion but these are some of the logical options we felt were good to put forward, but first to set the stage this is existing conditions map of western soma in terms of historic structures and what is designated, so you see the western soma
that there is an area of central corridor that overlaps with the western soma plan area and that, you know, our position has been to move forward with western soma as is -- as it is, and let central corridor run its process as well. but there hasn't been a lot of discussion about that issue. if you feel there needs to be, you can definitely have more discussion on that topic today as well. and then if there are any other topics that either were discussed to some degree and you want to discuss further or any new topics that we haven't yet discussed about any of the materials in your packets, staff is here and available for any questions you may have. >> thank you. is there a task force presentation? no, okay, great. so, i'll open up to public comment. i have three speaker cards. first one is luke saferlin, sorry for the pronunciation, and john kevlin and john goldman. >>> good afternoon, commissioners. my name is luke. i'm one of the owner of a historic [speaker not understood] in western soma on the 9th street corridor. the building has been built over the years with numerous tenants, mostly smaller ten
. >> commissioners, it will place you under your regular calendar, item 12, western soma community plan - informational discussion - no. 3. this is an informational item only. >> garv, president fong, commissioners. cory teague for staff. this is the last scheduled information hearing for western soma before the adoption hearing next week on december the sixth. this is a little unlike our previous informational hearings in that we do not have new materials for you to review for this session. it's at the request of the president to allow time for additional discussion and comments on any issues that are unresolved or so far today have not been thoroughly discussed. so, just to run down a few of those, just as a reminder, first of all, if you are a member -- weeks ago we talked specifically about the issue of entertainment uses and proposed zoning on 11th street between harrison and folsom and we presented you with a number of options and what each of those options would entail. there was a discussion in commenting. specifically, there were a few commissioners that called out option 3b as
and a number of our clients have been involved with the development of the western soma plan over the last ten years or so and for a couple reasons, we think that the western soma plan should be able to just kind of move forward and allow the central corridor plan to run its course. one project sponsor has been waiting a long time for these controls to go into effect and the central corridor plan is probably going to take another two or three years. before it goes into effect, [speaker not understood]. yeah, thank you. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon, commissioners. i'm john goldman of goldman architects. i spoke to you two weeks ago. we are the architects of the 343 50 11th street project which is now painted purple and is therefore very obvious on the street. to reiterate what cory was saying, we have an active permit submittal that was put in in 2005. because of the western soma planning process and the e-i-r process for the western soma which started actually after we submitted, we were told by planning that our project could not proceed unless my client paid for their own e-i-r, which wo
firm is in western soma along 11th and harrison. i am here because i found out about the new sally zoning and that clearly restricts any architecture or design professionals to move from where they are right now and especially people that want to move into western soma. it's ideal because we're close to the building department. my business has been there for nine years. i'm a local enterprise and agency company so i think if you -- you must allow architects and design professionals to be part of the sally zoning. it would total exclude us. i am here because i am a resident are harrison and 11th street corner which has that zoning issue that was just talked about. we were not notified of any redeveloping where they wouldn't allow residential until last month and we read it on jim meeko's blog on november 12. we tried to attend a november 15 meeting. we would love, love to have more residents in the neighborhood. i am also the architect for the businesses that recently closed down on 12th and howard and 12th and folsom. they were bars and had licenses. they closed. i know t
of housing to expend soma community stabilization fund dollars in the amount of $760,000. >> supervisor kim. >> thank you. i've introduced a resolution authorizing the mayor's office of housing to expend the soma community stabilization fund dollars in the amount of $760,000. this innovative fund, as many of you know, was approved as part of the rincon hill area plan that is intended to be used to address the issues of destabilization of residents and businesses in the south of market due to development in the rincon hill area. the fund that we are authorizing today is the third round of funding through the soma stabilization fund and is consistent with the latest strategic plan for the fund. as a south of market continues to grow and improve its new development and projects it is important that we continue to work on stabilizing current residents and businesses that have been a part of this neighborhood for decades. the stabilization fund gives us the opportunity to pilot tools and strategies outside of the mayor's office of housing's typical grant programs that are often restricted by gui
